Well, Officer, it's this way. I have had some serious problems finding a way to post photos to the web, either here or on Ravelry. First of all, I got a new computer. And we had moved, so my wonderful graphics program that I had used for years was packed away in some box somewhere. I kept thinking that we would get to that box soon, but what I didn't count on was that we moved twice. So, that box was pretty well buried, and we had far greater priorities than finding it.
So, I got on the web (with DH's help) and found a nice little free graphics program, so that I could edit my photos enough to post them to the web. I learned how to use it, and was able to get a couple of photos posted to Ravelry by e-mailing them from my phone to my Yahoo account. (I use the camera on my phone to take the photos.) Then, DH and I decided that it was just too expensive to maintain web access for our phones, and discontinued that. So, I was stuck again.
Finally, after some help from some nice new friends on Ravelry, I figured out how to download photos directly from my phone to the computer without having to e-mail them. There was a bit of a learning process again, but I think I have that mastered. I'm not sure I'm totally thrilled with having to spend time synching everything on my phone to my computer every time I want to transfer one photo, but at least I can now post photos to my blog and to my Ravelry project page.
Let's see if it works.
Yay!!! I just previewed it and the photo looks just like it should. Now, I suppose I should tell you, the reader, about the photo that is now being displayed here. This is my current PP, or Portable Project. It's a nice little piece that I'm making by using the Patriot Scarf pattern, which can be found at in-my-mothers-name.blogspot.com/2008/01/s
Except for one thing. I didn't really think about it, but I should have made it in the colors of my niece's school. She's on the middle school volleyball team, which I understand is doing quite well this year. Oh, well, maybe when I finish with this one, I can make another one in her school's colors. Then again, I may make it in just a straight 2 X 2 rib pattern, rather than the broken rib I'm using for this scarf. We'll see.
